As part of the Scott Kelby World Wide Photo Walk happening this Saturday 5th Oct (a world wide coordinated photo walk), I’ve been invited by the leader of the Singapore walk Wilson Wong to conduct a short workshop on street photography from 3pm to 4pm, and thereafter walk together with the participants of the photo walk.

Using photos from my photos from Little India, Orchard Road and the streets of Shinjuku and Shibuya in Japan, I will cover stuff like

1. Walking the streets – what to see, how to see
2. How to photograph strangers on the streets, and how to gain access to people
3. Seeing the light – how to use light to your advantage
4. Composition of the street – how to compose a photo based on the randomness of the
5. How to manage exposure and focus in a fast changing environment
6. How to make a unique visual statement

Participants will also be walked through a set of photos on Shibuya Crossings, a sub-project within Tokyo Dreaming, my long term project on the streets of Tokyo, to see how the principles covered were put in place. Using short video clips filmed on the streets of Tokyo, participants will be able to see how I approach my subjects, and by going through each photo in turn, you will also see how light and composition were used in creating those photos.
